  • Fabulous!

    "I highly recommend this gorgeous home! Everything was in perfect shape and the kitchen was well stocked. We barely used it as there were a gazillion restaurants and take-out places within a quick walk. The free trolley is around the corner, but we took a leisurely stroll home from the historic district each afternoon. The beds here are comfortable, which is not a given in a rental. Two of the bedrooms are attached, which was perfect for us with a 3-year old child, but the one thing that may not be ideal for everyone. A+ rental - I would stay here again in a second the next time we're in Charleston (which I hope will be soon!)"

  • Nice option

    "We rented this home as a last minute getaway. The owner was very gracious and easy to work with. The process is very smooth and the home was described exactly as it is. The location of the home is good for the beach and Charleston. Easy ride to both and it is nice to get out of the town at night. Home was appointed nicely and user friendly, pool was a nice feature. The only thing I would have liked to have had were TV's in the bedrooms. Other than that minor inconvenience, I would definitely reccomend renting the home. Nice family time."

  • Charming Charleston Carriage House

    "What a charming little house! From the moment we arrived in the cobbled driveway and walked down the beautifully landscaped oyster shell path to the carriage house, we were at home. Not only is this house quintessential Charleston with its beautiful gardens, stone walls and lovely interior, it also has an excellent location close to everything, but at the same time very quiet and private. It is so comfy and cozy with lots of special little touches and a working fireplace which we put to good use. There is plenty of storage and a well equipped kitchen. The off-street parking and weekly cleaning service are nice extras. And last, but not least, the owners Sallie & Scott are extremely gracious and accommodating hosts. We will be back next year."

    "A wonderful, beautiful home..close to everything! We couldn't have been more pleased. It was everything as advertised - plus more. The setting, the beauty of all the plants and greenery, the accommodations and amenities were outstanding. Michael was very helpful in getting us familiar with the home and answered all our questions. We would recommend this property if you wanted to be in the "heart" of Charleston. Also, the food and service was exceptional. A couple of our favorites was the Broken Egg for breakfast, The Noisy Oyster, T-Bonz Gill and Grill, A.W. Shucks, just to name a few. If you are into history, would recommend visiting Fort Sumter, Patriots Point, Home of the USS Yorktown, the destroyer Laffey, and WWII submarine Clamagore. Plus visit the Maritime Museum, Aquarium, Rainbow Row, City Market, take a carriage ride, tours of plantations, and if you get the chance go see "Angel Oak". We had a wonderful time. Thank you for letting us share your home for the week so that we could explore and enjoy the beautiful Charleston area."
